Your 1999 E-150 Econoline’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

1999 Ford E-150 Econoline Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ford E-150 Econoline engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Ford E-150 Econoline engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
